Movement and Color

My current series of paintings is all about the changing seasons in the Pacific Northwest; the cold, fast wind of winter over ground storing energy for early plant growth, the frantic push of the cherry blossoms in early Spring, the fits and bursts of color during the heat of the summer, and a humbling rainstorm signaling Fall. These abstracted images are meant to elicit sensations of motion; so that the viewer feels like they are moving with the strokes, and that they are able to live, if momentarily, inside of them.

A selection of the above paintings is on display at the Lynnwood Convention Center in Lynnwood, Washington, until December 21, 2018.
